The Wags Way…Is The Best Way!

Merritt Milam | September 1, 2021

Every day we are fortunate to have the best furry friends walk through our doors. Whether they’re here for a grooming, daycare, or extended stay, each one is special to us. Since 2014 Wags has made sure we treat each pet The Wags Way!

So, What is the Wags Way?
The Wags Way is our promise that your pets will always experience positive reinforcement, compassionate care, and a clean environment while here with the Wags team! Your pets will be treated like family, and we will never use force or intimidation tactics to modify their behavior. We will consistently foster a happy and fun atmosphere where our trainers and counselors are genuinely engaged and active with your furry friends! Safety is a top priority at Wags, and by utilizing a low counselor-to-pet ratio (1:5), we can devote more time to each pet while ensuring the safety of all.


Wags Daycare: Where the Fun Begins
One thing our pets and parents love at Wags is our daycare. Camp Wags offers a fun-filled daycare where dogs can enjoy a full schedule of playtime and socialization! Our Camp Counselors take great care to introduce dogs properly and determine playgroups by each dog’s personality and preferences. Our furry guests return home happy, exercised, and probably ready for a good night’s sleep! Our facility is one of the largest indoor climate-controlled facilities with plentiful skylights for a generous amount of sunshine! At Wags daycare your dogs will stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They also get lots of cool water, playtime, and our specialty – Tender Loving Care!

If your dog has never been to Wags daycare, we have a new client 5-day package for only $100. For more information on our package offers visit our website.

Sessions can include washing and blow-drying, ear cleaning, de-matting and haircut, nail trimming, and other sanitary necessities.
